Las tradiciones de habla hispana- Activities for Spanish 1-4

This is our last week before break and I wanted to share some short but sweet activities for teaching holiday celebrations at this time.

Resource for Spanish 3 and beyond.

Navidad Hispana and Lotería resource- Spanish 3/4

Resource for Spanish 1

Navidad Hispana and Lotería Short film

The Navidad Hispana resource is by Sergi Martin, the video link is included in the documents. Click here to see the video.  I stumbled upon it this past week and quickly developed some activities that my students could connect to in addition to providing them with an overview of important cultural practices. The video is 14 minutes long,  but I only created resources for the first three minutes.  In an attempt to streamline,  the activity has the same formatting but is differentiated to suit the different levels of students.

Navidad Hispana and Lotería Short film 

This film is very heart-warming. The Abuela, has dementia (at least that is what it seems like) and thinks she has won the lottery. Her family and townspeople go along with the script to make her happy. In my view, this film shows how we must engage sometimes in “La Bella Mentira” to preserve the dignity of others.  If you do this activity for Spanish 1, you will see a question about La Bella Mentira. They just finished the short story, La clase de confesiones, around that topic (hence the question at the lower level).

El Regalo: Short Film (2 minutes)

El regalo cortometraje

This video is super short about a granddaughter giving a gift to her grandfather. The vocabulary for the Navidad Hispana and La Lotería Spanish 1 activity dovetails perfectly.

Los Monigotes

I love this activity, we do it every year. We watch videos, discuss the traditions and then students engage in a New Year/ Leaving Monigotes behind. Click here for the video.
